Dubai Garden Glow. United Arab Emirates.

Dubai never ceases to amaze. If it’s not the tallest innovation, it’s the largest. If it’s not the biggest, then it’s the most expensive. It just does not stop and i am not complaining… at all. Well, they say you have to spend some to make some and this is a city anyone can tell a lot is invested in.

Every month, for the past five years, i have spent at least ten solid days in this city. I have explored corner to corner but i tell you the corners keep getting wider. So the other day while off to the shopping malls, i noticed something different on my usual route. Just when i thought i had seen most of what the city had to offer, another one just got pulled out of the bag. My heart skipped a beat, i kid you not. I clearly had something new on my to do list.

WOW! The Dubai Garden Glow theme park, love it to bits. The lights, the craftsmanship and ingenuity .. just WOW! Perfect example of ‘anything the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve’. Yet again they have outdone themselves. Bravo. Nature at its best is represented to the detail, beautiful flowers and all creatures great and small. Even the wildlife migration at the Maasai Mara was on display, oh what joy! I got a bit nostalgic and felt so proud of where i come from. Another thing i appreciate is that the importance of recycling is emphasized as seen in all that is on display.

I was watching Frost for the umpteenth yesterday 😀 And this post..the beautiful, colorful images, just took me right there where the movies do, made me feel like I was in one of the movies (A bug’s life to be precise)!I saw a reflection of myself on my screen as I was scrolling down, I was drooling!..hehehe This is so beautiful nyarma, thank you so much.

      Heeeeey Dorrie :) Tonnes of hugs my dear friend. Tell me ‘abourit’! I love animated films too, they take me to a happy place. I am yet to watch frozen.. late bloomer on that one but if you enjoyed it i’m sure i will too. Haha, that drool vibe is funny though. I’m so glad you enjoyed the post, i certainly enjoyed sharing it. I have some vaseline for that grease you need ha! But on the real, i am looking forward to you visiting. I think it will be back beginning of next year, Dubai is going through crazy summer right now and i don’t think the gig is still on. Hope to see you soon girl 😀
